Hans Christian Andersen

I just love Danny Kaye and posted this clip for our amusement. Check out the Hans Christian Andersen Center for some literary history. And as a quick follow up to JK's comment on my previous post about Garth Williams, I came across Leonard S. Marcus, Children's Book Historian, Author and Critic, and saw that Garth Williams is included in the exhibition catalogue titled, The Picture Book Made New: Margaret Wise Brown and Her Illustrators. That is helpful, but really he deserves a solo show. Perhaps we'll see one at The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature?

Marcus' co-curated exhibit,
Children Should be Seen: The Image of the Child in American Picture-Book Art, and another upcoming exhibit at the Eric Carle Museum,Over Rainbows and Down Rabbit Holes: The Art of Children's Books, are coming to CA!!!!!!
Happy 2008!
